Jaffer, MD, Professor of Medicine and Division Chief of Hospital Medicine at the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine, is the visiting professor.

This annual event was established to honor Dr. Louis F. Jermain, the first Dean of the Marquette University School of Medicine (which later became the Medical College of Wisconsin) and the first internal medicine specialist in the State of Wisconsin. Dr. Jermain served as Dean from 1913-1926, and was knighted by Pope Pius XI on August 4, 1925, as a Knight of St. Gregory, for his pioneering work in the field of medicine and medical education, as well as his commitment to establishing the medical school.
The Medical College’s Division of General Internal Medicine in the Department of Medicine is responsible for coordinating the event. Funding for the event was provided by Dr. Jermain’s family.
